Other Study Abroad Programs
UF landscape architecture students are encouraged to consider participating in other study abroad opportunities including summer semester enrichment programs offered through other institutions and other units within UF. In the past, students have participated in UF’s School of Architecture Southeast Asia program, Urban and Regional Planning’s Brazil program, Historic Preservation’s Nantucket Island program, Landscape Architecture’s Sumatra, Java and Bali Field Schools, School of Natural Resources’ New Zealand program, University of Washington’s Croatia program and University of Georgia’s Costa Rica program.

Graduate and undergraduate students interested in participating in international enrichment programs should discuss their options for elective transfer credits with College of Design, Construction and Planning’s Assistant Director of Academic Affairs and adviser Pat De Jong (undergraduates) or Department of Landscape Architecture Graduate Coordinator Dan Manley to clear enrollment prior to applying to study abroad programs.
